Vision care benefits for the military

For the first time, TRICARE health plan members are eligible to enroll and select their own vision coverage through the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP).
FEDVIP is a voluntary, enrollee-pay-all dental and vision program available to Federal employees and annuitants and certain uniformed service members. It is sponsored by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and offers eligible participants a choice between ten dental and four vision carriers.
